Heath Robinson Kitchen 3 of 4

Heath Robinson Does Away with Servants - Patent Applied for by "The Sketch" in the Kitchen. A busy Kitchen, which is a typically Heath Robinson design, with a system of pulleys, levers and machinery allowing just one man to peel and mash potatoes, whisk eggs, roast a chicken, wash the plates, roll pasrty, and toast bread, all at once, sitting down. and still be able to smoke a cigar, and no need for servants. Even the pendulum of the clock serves as a handy turnip peeler. Please note: Credit must appear as Courtesy of the Estate of Mrs J.C.Robinson/Pollinger Ltd/ILN/Mary Evan"

Collecting Eggs at Flamborough Head Featured Print

Collecting Eggs at Flamborough Head

Collecting seagull's eggs at Flamborough Head, Yorkshire. A traditional practice for farmers whose land adjoined the cliff edge, which gave them a legal right to supplement their income by selling eggs. The farmer sub-licenced gangs of three or four 'climmers', to gather eggs of the gulls, common guillemot, razorbill and others from the cliff side. It was a perilous business, requiring fitness and skill, but the rewards must have been great - in 1908 such eggs commanded a shilling a dozen (about the same as a hundredweight of coal) and it was estimated that gangs could collect up to 300 or 400 eggs a day in season. Date: 1911

Blowfly laying eggs, SEM Featured Print

Blowfly laying eggs, SEM

Blowfly laying eggs. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a female Lucilia sp. blowfly laying her eggs (lower left). A blowfly lays its eggs on dead bodies. This behaviour is studied by forensic entomologists. A blowfly detects a dead body by the odour of decomposition, and can arrive at a corpse minutes after death and lay up to 300 eggs. The decaying flesh is food for the maggots (fly larvae) that hatch from the eggs within 24 hours. These two-millimetre-long eggs are laid in patches around moist orifices such as the nose, ears and eyes, as well as open wounds. Fresh and unhatched blowfly eggs will indicate a very recent time of death. Magnification unknown.
